More about us

  1. I am a German woman of 49, freelance teacher at Sceaux University and would like to join my daughter who lives in Sydney. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try it out for a period of 4 to 12 weeks or longer. This should help me to decide where my place in life is, in Europe or in Australia. Exchange as of September 2010.
